THE FRIENDSHIP VOW
There is something I've been meaning to tell you.
I want you to know that I am here for you, my friend;
I am here to console you and comfort you;
I am here to make you smile and make you laugh;
I am here to make you busy and make you forget;
I am here to wipe your tears and make your cheeks dry again;
I am here for you, always.
When skies, clouds, the sun and the wind come crashing on you,
I will steal you away into the world of music and fun for you to forget;
When the darkness and the moon send a chill that makes your bones rigid,
I will bring back light to life and wake you from up your cold thrilling nightmares;
When the seas and waters try to drown you,
I will rescue you and teach you how to swim;
When the day is tiring and upsetting,
I will be your amusement;
When you are desperate to be alone,
I will send the soothing air breeze into your lone quiet atmosphere;
And when you get so frightened to walk the holy path,
I will be your adviser, your confidant and maybe your confidant.
You need companionship in the wars that go on in your life;
So, I’ll stand by you;
I’ll stand by you while you fight off the demons that live inside you;
I’ll stand by you while you battle the evil magnetic wonders of the earth that lead to destruction;
I’ll stand by you when your enemies and battles outfight you;
I’ll stand by you if it causes your blood and friends to forsake you;
I’ll stand by you when the consequences of your failure are too extreme for you to handle;
I’ll stand by you.
It will be hard;
Fight might break between us;
Distance might separate us;
The future might build a huge mountain between us;
The mountain might be physical or spiritual;
But I don’t care about that now, do I?
And may God forbid for that to happen;
Because I will stand by you;
I don’t promise to be your lover;
But I’ll stand by you.
I’ll do that because;
When I look into the depths of your eyes,
All I see is me; sad and lonely;
When I glance crazy hair,
I understand that perfection is not your color, and same goes for me;
When I see the quick in and out movement of your chest,
I take in that sometimes you just can’t keep quiet anymore;
And all you wanna do is scream so loudly but without anyone hearing your troubled devastating cry;
When I watch you moving fast as if something is running after you,
I know that you are trying to disappear before you get noticed by anyone;
And it is sad when you attempt to talk to other people;
You always end up saying the wrong thing over and over;
You get so humiliated in your eyes that you look around to see whether anyone has noticed your shame;
And then you run away quickly;
I have noticed for sometime now;
It has happened to me too;
Therefore I know how it feels like.
I know that desperate longing hunger;
I know that empty feeling in your stomach even after you have eaten a full plate;
I know those frustration tears that make you ask God why with anger;
I know that feeling of your heart banging up in your chest as if it’s about to explode;
I know, o darling I know.
Now please embrace me;
Do not push me away
It took some great courage;
‘Cause, I have never told that to anyone but you, my dearest best friend.
